River Vale will be offering a Spring field hockey clinic open to River Vale residents that will focus on introducing the sport to girls in grades Kindergarten through 5th. All skill levels are welcome! This is a great opportunity to get to know a different sport while making friends in town.
The inaugural clinic will be held on Saturdays for six weeks at Mark Lane.

Each session will include coach-led instruction and live games, with all sessions running on Saturdays. Participants will be divided into three groups K-1, 2-3 and 4-5, based on the number of participants, and will learn the fundamental skills of field hockey, including stickhandling basics, dribbling, passing, and shooting. Each session will be taught through structured activities, fun games, and scrimmages and are designed to ensure learning and most importantly having fun.
